It appears the UFC will foot the bill for former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierres pending knee surgery to repair a torn ACL. Sean Couturier Jersey . President Dana White confirmed to MMAjunkie that despite St-Pierres "frozen" contract status, the surgery in Los Angeles this week will still be covered by the UFC because he is not fully retired. St-Pierres insurance policy has only been in existence since 2011, which raised a few concerns as to whether his injury and subsequent surgery would fall within the parameters of the policy. "We have health insurance for the guys," White said. "It should be covered even if the contract is frozen. Hes still under contract; hes still a UFC fighter." The former champion successfully defended his title for the ninth consecutive time against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November. After the fight, St-Pierre announced he would be taking a leave of absence from the octagon to tend to personal issues. He would eventually vacate the title - now held by Hendricks - but continued to train in his time off in Montreal. Last week, he announced on Twitter that he tore the ACL in his right knee. St-Pierre underwent the same surgery on his left knee in 2011 and was sidelined nearly 19 months. Oskar Lindblom Jersey . Three days after falling to Hamilton, Abbotsford scored three goals in 53 seconds en route to a convincing 5-1 win over the Bulldogs Saturday in American Hockey League play.

For the Bombers it has been a combination of things coming together at the most inappropriate moments in time. Quarterback, injuries, Canadian talent or depth and leadership are all issues. Trust me when I say being a Bomber is no fun right now in a city that embraces football the way Winnipeg does. While Buck Pierce will be getting another shot, I think Max Hall does deserve another opportunity.GLASGOW -- Scotlands attacking options have been boosted by the return of fullback Stuart Hogg for the countrys opening Six Nations match against Ireland on Sunday. Hogg, who toured Australia with the British and Irish Lions last year, missed the autumn internationals because of injury but is back among four personnel changes to Scotlands starting XV for the match in Dublin.
